THE EXPLORE STAGE

The EXPLORE stage runs for two non-consecutive days and sees each mentor taking their students out of school so that their students can start to experience the worlds of creative industry and higher education. These days are a rare opportunity for the students, and every year their feedback tells us that this stage is particularly enjoyable and memorable for them.

EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WORK
Students have the chance to participate in behind-the-scenes tours and to speak with creative entrepreneurs, university lecturers, college and university students, and business professionals. As a result, students begin to make connections with industry specialists and gain a deeper working understanding of their chosen creative area. The tours, both of industry and further education, showcase the academic and vocational routes that are available in each creative sector – and dispel the myth that the arts, design, media or creative industries are a soft option to take.
